I love silly fake food holidays, and Pi(e) Day is no exception. March 14, aka 3/14 is known as Pi Day, and people celebrate by eating pie. I am no math geek, but I will take any excuse to eat pie. Today I have rounded up 13 Pie Recipes to Celebrate Pi Day, including both sweet and savory options.
Bourbon Butterscotch Pie – This pie is my favorite! It’s a sweet pie with a pudding filling and a shortbread crust and a little kick of bourbon.
French Style Apple Rhubarb Pie – Charles loves apple pie and this version combines fresh apples and rhubarb with a crispy crumbly top. It’s like apple pie and apple crisp combined.
Bourbon Peach Pie – This is a juicy fruit pie that isn’t too sweet. It tastes even better with a bit of caramel and a scoop of vanilla ice cream on top.
Chocolate Caramel Pie with a Pretzel Crust – A sweet and salty pie with a crust of crushed pretzels topped with a layer of caramel, and a thick rich chocolate filling.
Banana Cream Pie – A traditional banana cream pie with a twist – a layer of chocolate.
Strawberry Rhubarb Pie – A classic flavor combination in a pie with chunks of strawberry and rhubarb.
Chocolate Thin Mint Pie – A super chocolatey pie made with a crust made of crushed thin mints – but if you don’t want to sacrifice your Girl Scout cookies you could use Oreos instead.
Raspberry Pie – This pie filled with a homemade raspberry jello tastes like summer.
Pecan Pie with a Shortbread Crust – A sweet pecan pie with a crisp buttery no-roll shortbread crust, this is one of my Thanksgiving favorites.
Strawberry Pie – I need to take new photos for this amazing recipe for strawberry pie. The recipe came from the restaurant where my parents met, and it’s legendary in my hometown.
Shepherd’s Pie – If you happen to have some leftover chicken or turkey you can make this shepherd’s pie loaded with veggies.
Taco Pie – This is a really quick and hearty dinner recipe made with beef, tortillas, cheese, and lots of veggies.
Chicken Pot Pie – Have some leftover chicken? This delicious chicken pot pie takes just 15 minutes of active preparation time.
